Laying the Groundwork – BLOGIS

Starting on this day and going into the following week, it is my objective to learn the basics of arcMap, which is the program we will be using for all geospatial analyses of the Monument Creek stretch adjacent to the Colorado College campus.  Meanwhile, Dave was primarily tasked with compiling various public datasets involving the Monument Creek Watershed, including geographical basemaps, systems of roads and pipelines, vegetation demographics, etc. As a supplement to our main goals of the week, it has been critical to read peer-reviewed articles of past and current river restorative measures to make note of possible approaches and solutions to the issue at hand.
